Title: Child Labour


1
Child Labour
2
What are your rights?
  • The UN states that all children have basic rights
  • The right to survival (food, shelter, healthcare)
  • The right to develop to the fullest
  • The right to protection from harmful influences
    e.g. abuse and exploitation

3
What is child labour?
  • Many children around the world do not have these
    basic rights
  • child labour in many cases deprives children of
    the opportunity to attend school
  • Or it requires them to combine extremely heavy
    workload with school

4
Child labour today
  • There are 5.7 million children working in forced
    labour- slavery is not dead
  • Children are often used to clear a family debt,
    this is called bonded labour
  • Children are often tricked into sexual
    exploitation e.g. prostitution
  • Children as young as 5 work 15 or 16 hours a day
    in domestic servitude (made to eat leftovers,
    receive little or no pay, abuse is common)

5
Activity
  • What do you understand by the term child
    labour? Think of as many examples of child
    labour that you can
  • In groups discuss what might be the effects on
    children if they are forced to work

6
What is the extent of the problem?
  • Child labourers can be found working in all
    regions of the world however the problem is
    undoubtedly more common in the developing world

Child labour often results in the following
  • Exploitation of children through force, low
    wages, poor working conditions and abuse
  • Denial of rights e.g. education, health
  • Poverty
  • Greed amongst employers
  • Ignorance of people purchasing products made with
    child labour e.g. footballs as children stitch
    the footballs in India, Pakistan and China

8
How can we stop child labour
  • Lots of groups will have to work together e.g. EU
    and UN
  • The countries were there is child labour must do
    all they can to stop it
  • Businesses must make sure child labour is not
    involved in products sold in the UK

A world cup football costs 91 the child stitcher
receives an average of 17 cents

    petition see Mrs Johnston)

    awareness

    child labour
